Dallas, TX (PRWEB) September 24, 2009
Alliant Medical Staffing has achieved the Gold Seal of Approval™ for health care staffing services from The Joint Commission.
Alliant Medical Staffing underwent an on-site review of its compliance with national standards addressing how staffing firms determine the qualifications and competency of their staff, how they place their staff, and how they monitor staff's performance.
"Health care organizations that contract with Alliant Medical Staffing can look to this certification as an assurance that Alliant Medical Staffing demonstrates a commitment to providing and continuously improving quality services," says Michele Sacco, M.S., executive director, Health Care Staffing Services Certification, Joint Commission.
The ongoing shortages of nurses, pharmacists and other health care professionals have made it necessary for health care organizations to increasingly fill positions with temporary workers through contractual arrangements with staffing firms. The Joint Commission's certification program, launched in October 2004, offers an independent, comprehensive evaluation of a staffing firm's abilities to provide competent staffing services.
"Certification recognizes Alliant Medical Staffing's dedication to providing per diem and travel nurses that are qualified to provide safe, high-quality care to patients," says Jeff Francis, President of General Partner. "Obtaining the Joint Commission Gold Seal of Approvaltm demonstrates our commitment to continually improving the quality of patient care that our clinical staff is able to provide."
